EverQuest Next Landmark Alpha Possibly Starting Late January
Would you say you are 1, 2, 5, or 50 exciteds for EverQuest Next? Be not afraid to answer, for there is no incorrect way to answer this question.
It seems EverQuest Next Landmark, the sandbox counterpart to go with EverQuest Next itself may be seeing its alpha launch just next month.
John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment, commented on the game's upcoming alpha on his Twitter, leaving little wiggle room for guesses:
It's looking like our Alpha for EQNL is going to start sometime in the last half of January. Very excited.!

This is great news for those who purchased Founder's Packs for the game to get their way into alpha, as the previous estimated date was February 28th. A late January alpha launch means we may be seeing the game more than a month earlier than initially anticipated. Excitement!
EverQuest Next Landmark is meant to be the companion to EverQuest Next, in which players can build using the game's voxel-based engine and potentially have their creations transported into EQN after the testing phases. Be sure to read more about it on the official site.
